|Embodied Listening with David Rome and Hope Martin
Thu July 12th: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Price: $10.00 tuition
In Room(s): Main Shrine Room
Each person's way of being in the world has its own physical shape and felt quality. These unique patterns influence every moment of our lives—yet they are largely habitual and therefore unknown to us. Embodied Listening is a powerful multidisciplinary approach to caring for ourselves and our relationships by developing greater awareness, insight and empathy. When we learn to listen deeply to ourselves, we also become more open and sensitive to the feelings and needs of others. This evening talk in Halifax preceeds a program at Windhorse Farm in which participants will:
- Experience living more fully and comfortably in our body through the Alexander Technique
- Train our mind to be calmer and clearer through the practice of mindfulness-awareness meditation
- Access “felt sense,” the intuitive wisdom of the body, with the practice of Mindful Focusing
This program is highly experiential and will include periods of meditation, short presentations by the retreat leaders, guided body awareness including gentle hands-on instruction, felt sense exercises, one-on-one listening partnerships and group discussion.
You may, of course, choose only to attend the Thursday evening talk.
